An amazing experience. Excellent hotel. Wonderful views and so quiet. I am am easily disturbed but did not hear a sound all night. Very comfortable bed. The staff are very freindly and helpful although they do not volunteer information about where the restaurant is or how the system with the spa works. You have to work it out for yourself!... More

My wife and I like to go from time to time to this pleasant hotel. This year, it was my Xmas treat and surprise ! The rooms have been nicely renewed, and are comfortable but not huge, The bed is simply fan-tas-tic !! The restaurant in the main building has also undergone restoration, but the evening meal is still the... More

I stayed at this hotel last year for a quick get away. The hotel is very nice and comfortable, but nothing too special. The spa, however, is a real treat. The restaurant close by is great for fondue and raclette.

Very good place, Great Bath, not really expensive if you stay at the hotel. Bath price are calculated with time passed... The bill could explose ! So Baths and all attractions are really pleasant. Really good price on the small take away restaurant.

God hotel -- rooms are not very well appointed though. Breakfast is typical European - frugal but you can ask for specials at an extra cost. The Dinner Buffet is pretty good and surprisingly as the only meal option in the hotel fairly inexpensive. Suggest just go for the Plate of the Day Buffet - you can always take Dessert... More

It's not a very refined or quit SPA but a relaxed fun set of pools and water treats. The whirlpool is the big attraction. It's similar to an carousel in hot water. A great experience for kids and grown ups.

The hotel is quite good in general (though the bed was not comfortable). But the bains themselves are awesome! Its one of the best experiences we have had. Though it was cold outside, the water was extremely warm and comfortable. A must visit place!!!

This is an utterly pleasant and relaxing hotel. Staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable. The baths are great and you can also get massages, facials, etc in the wellness centre that is part of the hotel. The buffet in the Oasis restaurant is great - the only criticism of it might be "how not to overeat?" :-) Some of the... More

This is the third time we spend a weekend in Lavey-les-bains and specifically in this hotel: rooms are fair but clean, better the ones on the first floow with terrazze on the beautiful garden. The hotel provides free access to warm pools, where you can have hamman, sauna or simply enjoy the contrast between the warm water and the chilly... More

First I should say I love, love, love Lavey-les-Bains and have been visiting for years with a local friend. Until recently I'd only ever come to the baths for 3 or 4 hours at a time. This week I stayed for a few days in the hotel. I wasn't expecting much and was overall pleasantly surprised by the hotel decor... More
